Get styling, girl

Do you have or know a tweenage girl? Most of the ones I know are obsessed with fashion. It’s all about inventing something new and cool. And I don’t know about you, but I’d much rather my daughter experiment in mix-n-match style on her dolls or in her sketchbook than with her own clothes. (One, I don’t want to finance that habit, and two, often her dolls wear things I probably wouldn’t let her wear.)

So when the Harumika folks came along offering to send me one of their style starter sets, I said sure. It looked like a great way for kids to experiment with inventing outfits without either bankrupting us parents or causing us to have “you’re not leaving the house dressed in THAT” palpitations.

This weekend one lucky Want Not reader is going to win a Harumika Wild One Starter Set, complete with everything your budding fashionista needs to create her own set of outfits for the enclosed miniature dress form. The set is for children ages six and up, but I won’t tell if you find yourself playing with it, too.

Want to win it? First go read the contest rules and regulations, then come back here and leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Sunday, August 23rd, 2009 to be entered. Winner to be determined by random number generation and runway strut.

Ready? Go!

    I find financing their real life fashion experimenting isn’t so bad since we have good thrift stores around here, and they can find about anything for almost no money. Still, this kit looks cool!


  16. My daughter would flip out for this…hope I win!

  17. How cool would I be to my soon to be 9 yr old if she got that as a birthday present?

  26. I have a daughter who has a friend that “make” clothes for their stuffed animals. they would go crazy for this thing!

  27. Fashion is the furthest thing from my mind being a stay at home mom. I know this because my 8 year old daughter points it out to me on a daily basis with “you’re not going out in THAT are you?”. She on the other hand is a budding fashion-ista and would love to get her hands on something like this! 🙂

  28. My little girl is too little (she’s only four), but my sister’s daughter is quite the seamstress these days. She would adore this.

  29. Enter me — Enter me…please.

    (Oh and Mir, you are looking very pretty today.)

That and her newest career choice is to be a fashion designer. So I got her notepads and colored pencils to create her designs. This would be better! I so hope I win, for her sake!!
